Faith Child – The Day of the Lord

Last Judgement, Triptych

“Surely the dayis coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and that day that is coming will set them on fire,” says the LORD Almighty. “Not a root or a branch will be left to them. 2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. 3 Then you will trample down the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I do these things,” says the LORD Almighty.”

I love to read the commentary of learned men of God and here I share about the Day of the Lord when everything will be made right by our Lord.

Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary

4:1-3 Here is a reference to the first and to the second coming of Christ: God has fixed the day of both. Those who do wickedly, who do not fear God’s anger, shall feel it. It is certainly to be applied to the day of judgment, when Christ shall be revealed in flaming fire; to execute judgment on the proud, and all that do wickedly. In both, Christ is a rejoicing Light to those who serve him faithfully. By the Sun of Righteousness we understand Jesus Christ. Through him believers are justified and sanctified, and so are brought to see light. His influences render the sinner holy, joyful, and fruitful. It is applicable to the graces and comforts of the Holy Spirit, brought into the souls of men. Christ gave the Spirit to those who are his, to shine in their hearts, and to be a Comforter to them, a Sun and a Shield. That day which to the wicked will burn as an oven, will to the righteous be bright as the morning; it is what they wait for, more than those that wait for the morning. Christ came as the Sun, to bring, not only light to a dark world, but health to a distempered world. Souls shall increase in knowledge and spiritual strength. Their growth is as that of calves of the stall, not as the flower of the field, which is slender and weak, and soon withers. The saints’ triumphs are all owing to God’s victories; it is not they that do this, but God who does it for them. Behold another day is coming, far more dreadful to all that work wickedness than any which is gone before. How great then the happiness of the believer, when he goes from the darkness and misery of this world, to rejoice in the Lord for evermore!”

Faith Child, today when many things seem wrong, the righteous being harassed and seemingly powerless, the pervading  evil in man and environment – watch for the Day of the Lord shall come when everything shall be made right. Yes, Faith Child it will all come right in the end. Amen the Lord has a good plan for us and we should hang in there with the hope that it will not be long and that He gives grace to those who have no might.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11

    One of the greatest motivations to serve Him now is realizing, we have a job to finish before He comes again. Let’s all fulfill our callings as we eagerly await His return.

    He looks beyond our faults when we are in Christ. Thank God for His grace and mercy and love when we do not even deserve . Thank Jesus for giving Himself and leaving heaven’s glory for us when He came to earth. Thank God according to His Word the Day of the Lord shall come with His reward.

  3. We praise God for calling us to Himself and giving us His limitless love, joy, peace and certain hope. We look for His coming when He will take us to Himself. We look forward to appearing at the Judgement Seat of Christ, because when the wood, hay and stubble is burened up, we will have gold, silver and precious stones to lay at the feet of Jesus, the only One worthy to receive them. We look forward to supping with Him at the marriage supper of the Lamb, and to spending eternity singing His praises.

    We praise Him that we will never have to appear before the Great White Throne, because Jesus has already paid the penalty for us and we are covered with the robes of His righteousness.

    What an amazing redemption!
    What an amazing God!

    God thinks towards us in Peace! God’s thoughts are more powerful than all the forces of the Devil, much less any man made devices!
